  /// final interruptLine = ...;

  /// [GpioLine.onEvent] is a broadcast stream. If an event is
  /// added to a broadcast stream, but no listener is present,
  /// that event will simply be discarded. So if your chip
  /// triggers the interrupt faster than the dart code reaches
  /// the `await for`, the signal event will be discarded and
  /// the dart code will block there indefinitely, waiting for
  /// a signal event.
  ///
  /// Instead, do something like this:

  /// Get a single-subscription (buffering stream).
  /// The stream will start buffering the events immediately.
  /// If you use `listen` to subscribe to this Stream (or mapped / filtered / etc variants of it),
  /// it's important to cancel your subscription afterwards, otherwise
  /// memory will fill up with buffered signal events.
